Meeting at the Annanwater Hall, near Moffat at 10:00 on Saturday 7 June, we will transport you to the start at Newbiebarns for a late morning start. We will provide you with a tracker before setting you on your way. We will provide drinks stations, but the expectation is that you will be able to support yourself and navigate the Annandale Way on your own. You can choose which of the two loops to take according to which you believe might be the fastest route.

You will keep travelling North and are encouraged to take the clockwise route around the Beeftub loop before finishing at the Annanwater Hall.

Prizes will be on offer for the fastest male and female competitor in this unique supported challenge.

Full details of the Annandale Way are on the Annandale Way Website to help you plan your route.

There will be an expectation that you will meet the minimum kit list and be able to support yourself through the challenge. However if you need to take a rest or drop out the team will not be far away to come to your aid.

Walk 4 Entry Fees

Entry £60.00 per person or £50.00 Early Bird if you sign up early
Group Entry (4 Adults) £200.00 or £150.00 Early Bird

We would also be grateful for any sponsorship you may be able to raise, we now have a Just Giving link to allow you to setup an online giving page for the 2019 Anniversary Challenge or we can provide sponsorship forms.

This is part of the annual Moffat Mountain Rescue Charity Challenge event and links in with three other walks which take place on the Sunday. There will also be a walkers start which will meet at 0600 on the Saturday.
